Good Finesse Baitcaster 1/8 - 3/16 Oz Baits

Recommended Posts

Any 50 size shimano or a Daiwa pixy can handle that easily. If you want more extreme just add a yumeya BFS spool.

Agreed.  The other important part of the puzzle is a rod that rated low enough to load those weights.

A whole lot of reels could do this duty if using 6lb test line and proper rod.  The Daiwa Sol is a very good choice or any Daiwa Alphas.  I have not done it yet but I'm going to buy one of those Pinnacle Producer LTE or whatever they're called, the ones all the mods here are bragging about.  I'm betting with clean spool bearings even this reel with 6 lb line on it will throw 1/8 oz lures a respectable distance and they only cost $90.

I love these responses, under 200, but add another 100bucks on a spool. while your at it, add a longer handle too.

Since there are so many stock reels that are capable of casting 1/8th oz weight, can someone post some video of them casting a 1/8th oz naked jig head on a stock reel.

I have tried this on a lot of rod and reel combinations, many with upgraded spools and bearings, and I have not found it easy to do with any of them.

Help me out with some video, please.

The spool is not necessary nor longer handle.

What Rod specs do u like

Most ML rods rated as low as 1/8 should work.

What combination and line are you using to cast 1/8oz on?

I must be doing something wrong. I have two rods rated down to 1/8 - 1\2. My super tuned 50e cant throw 1\8 on them. but it does throw 1\4 ounce total weight pretty good.

I have a pixzilla on a klx finesse rod and pxl-r on a imx cr721.  I use 10lb. power pro, but considering yozuri hybrid this year.  I also have a scorpion xt with avail spool, but no rod presently.

find a used daiwa sol

I have an upgraded Sol, bearings, drag, handle, level wind bearing, all the usual stuff. I don't find it that great at casting 1/8th oz baits. In fact I own a couple of very upgraded Fuego's and with the 100M spool installed I find them the better caster, but still not great at 1/8oz.

At 1/8oz what do you guys feel would be a respectable distance for sub $200 reels?...sub $100 reels?

If you can cast an 1/8th oz at all on a sub 100 dollar bait cast reel it would be good distance.  I hear a lot of reports that the Curado 50E can do it for under 200, I know that I was not satisfied with mine even with upgrades and the distance was less than 10 yards.

I cast Flicker Spinners. They weigh between 1/16 to 1/40 of a ounce.

 

Mitchell Ultra light with 2 # mono or 4# braid. Long & STIFF rod to get the air speed up there.   Actually the easy way is split shot or cast downwind in a good breeze.    :eyebrows:

Think he is looking for a LP BC by the title of his post.

But how far can u cast that weight with your heavy spool CT100 and your Crucial? I am getting a little over 20 yards casting an unweighted Trick Worm with a Shimano Scorpion XT-1000 w/a Yumeya BFS spool, a Loomis MBR782 and 10# Power Pro.

IMHO, a full spool on a stock 50 Shimano is still too heavy for casting really light lures.

Two actual reels that I do own that throw light weight better than a 50E supertuned, with no spool upgrade is... under 200 is ***, and over 200 is Helios Air.

That's all throwing a 4" yum dinger wacky rigged weightless and a 1\8 ounce plus 2" grub on the same rod, line, etc...

Nice setups, what you thinking of putting the Scorpion on?
